PERFORMANCE ” RELATIONS IN SPACE AND TIME”
13th May 2006 FESTIVAL OF FREE ARTS-CULTURAL CENTER OF YOUTH- BELGRADE
Start: 1 pm , Finish: 7 pm Duration: 6 hours
This performance which I was performing is product from my exploration in domen of physical and mental possibility of my body which has been putted in determinated context and exposed to very difficult requirements.
Actually,what I wanted to perform by this performance has been constructed from one ,on the first sight, very simple action- sitting.
Performans started at 1 pm when I decided to sit on a iron chair in some simetrical position,and stayed in determinated position 6 hours without move , and with a strong concentration in one point in the space.
What I wanted to know acttualy is ,what will happen with my body and face after 6 hours non stop sitting.
I can cite some characteristic examples what’s happened during that action:
1) After one hour, tears streamed from my eyes and latter again and again.
2)After 3 hours ,extremely pain in muscles,backbone and rear.
3)After 4 hours I could not feel my body on the chair and in the space.
4) After 5 hours ,watching in one point have been unpossible,because I was irritating my eyes so much and I have not been able to see nothing clearly.
5)I finished 6 th hour of performance with totally red ,and tearful eyes ,with dry mouth and one unbelievable contract on my face,my legs were all cramped up.
